The book by Ewa Bujwid-Kurek entitled The Post-Yugoslav Countries. A Study in Political Science
is the first work in the Polish literature of political science, analyzing the issue of the post-Yugoslav countries as a whole, i.e. the issue of the new political entities that have emerged as a result of the break-up of Yugoslavia.
The problem of the break-up of Yugoslavią accompanied by wars and conflicts, as well as the formation of new statehoods in the area, is an issue that has a great political significance in contemporary Europe . The relevance of this publication is proved by the presence of issues that are very recent or that have an exceptionally short history, such as the disintegration of the Federation of Serbia and Montenegro and the rise of two independent countries in its place - the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Montenegro, as well as the issue of Kosovo. Two separate and detailed chapters have been devoted to this new reevaluation of the political map of the post-Yugoslav Balkans. This approach has provided for the completeness of the study, as it has brought the process of ihe formation of the new post-Yugoslav national entities to a finał conclusion, which has not been an easy task.
